ISLAMABAD - Conergy has joined forces with energy solutions provider and project developer Ensunt to realise a 50 megawatt solar power plant for the DACC Power Generation Company Limited (DPGCL). The project will be the largest solar power plant in Pakistan and one of the landmark projects in the entire Middle East and Indian region. The project in Bahawalpur, situated in the Cholistan region, is owned by DPGCL and the Pakistani Government, which have now taken on Conergy to provide overall planning, engineering and design of the solar park. Conergy will also be supplying its premium “Made in Germany” components for this large-scale project. Ensunt will then provide the local implementation as well as the construction work on site , says a press release.
Doug Melvin, President of DPGCL, said: “The 50 megawatt power plant is the biggest solar project for the Government of Pakistan. Currently, the region is heavily dependent on hydroelectric plants as an energy source. The results are high fluctuations in the energy supply, power outages or shortages. In response to requests from the President, the Prime Minister and his cabinet are working to prevent the shortage of energy, while providing a clean renewable energy source, sustainable economic development, and job creation in Pakistan.”
DPGCL and Ensunt have teamed up with Conergy to assist the Pakistan government to be responsive to the needs of the people and mitigate the power shortages throughout Pakistan.
“After a comprehensive comparison of products and capabilities, DPGCL and Ensunt decided in favour of Conergy for supplying all our needs. We are even looking beyond these 50 megawatts.
It is a great comfort to DPGCL and the Government of Pakistan to partner with a company such as Conergy as the sole source provider for our planning, design and component requirements in Pakistan. We are confident that the exceptional quality of Conergy components and their proven expertise will pay off in the long-term through a stable supply of power,” Doug Melvin added.
